Citizen Services Museums
Latin America is one of the Ministry of Culture's priority lines of cooperation for museums. Up to now, events in this field have been centred around training programmes for Latin American professionals, including courses both in Spain and Latin America, grants and bilateral and multilateral professional meetings, aiming to bring about closer ties between the museum sectors in the countries involved, and other specific actions.
In 2008, the Ministry of Culture will continue working in the areas mentioned above, thanks to the Iniciativa Ibermuseos which is now under way and the celebration of the Ibero-American Year of Museums.
Through this website, the Ministry of Culture offers Latin American museum professionals and the general public a centre of information and a space for voicing opinions.
